A Beacon For Modern London
A icon of modern London, a vertical city where people can live, work and relax.
Welcome to the Vertical City
The Shard is not simply an iconic building but represents a new approach to expanding the urban landscape. Offices, residences and public spaces alike are all taken skyward.
Realising the Vision
Irvine Sellar, The Shard's developer and joint owner, had an ambitious vision to create an architecturally striking vertical city incorporating retail, offices, hotel, apartments, restaurants and a public viewing gallery.
The Level Guide
Shard Quarter is home to Western Europe’s tallest building - The Shard, News UK’s Headquarters - The News Building, and the soon-to-be completed residential development - Shard Place.
